Archduke Trio, Op. 97, is one of over a dozen compositions Beethoven dedicated to his friend, student, and patron, Archduke Rudolph of Austria. They include pieces such as Missa Solemnis, the Fourth and Fifth Piano Concertos, and the piano sonata, Op. 81a, Les Adieux, written in response to the Archduke’s departure from Vienna during the siege of the city by Napoleon’s forces in 1809. The premiere of the Trio was one of Beethoven’s final concert performances as a pianist. Structured in four movements, the trio’s grand concept makes it almost a symphony for violin, cello, and piano.
